#24. The Avengers

Maybe the Avengerssaga is the most successful series of superhero movie of all time and the cast was one of the reasons for it. Including Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Chris Hemsworth, the movie has become one of the most-watched movies of all time.

They became such good friends that Scarlett came up with the idea to do a group tattoo! Luckily, everyone agreed. First, Evans and Johansson tattoed themselves the Avengers logo and then the tattoo artist John Lord traveled to Los Angeles and Downey Jr. and Renner got the same tattoo. The last one was Hemsworth. After all, the group is always going to be the Avengers.

#23. The Stark Sisters

We all have been part of the world phenomenon of Game Of Thrones. We cried with Ned Stark’s death (we still do), we loved the romance between Khaleesi and Jon and we wanted to be like Arya. If the audience felt that way, imagine the actors of the series. The Stark Sisters —the young actresses Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams— decided to do something permanently to remember this GOT era…

The on-screen sisters decided to get matching tattoos of the date that they had their first audition: “07.08.09”. Both of them decided to do it in peach ink and in their arms. We cannot wait to see if all the Starks siblings decide to do the same. What would they choose?

#22. The Young Ladies Of Mamma Mia

Oh, Mamma Mia! Here we go again… Young actresses Amanda Seyfried, Ashley Lilley and Rachel McDowall became really good friends on the set of the musical movie Mamma Mia! How could they resist the idea of getting a matching tattoo?

The trio played the role of best friends in the movie but actually in real life they became really good friends. In honor of the time they shared on-screen and on set, they decided to get the same tattoo. The word they chose is “minge”, which they said is a made-up term of love between each other.

#21. The Members Of 13 Reasons Why

We know all the controversy that 13 Reasons Why caused among society and reporters. Despite this, the executive producer Selena Gomez and the stars of the Netflix series, Tommy Dorfman and Alisha Boe, have shown themselves together and very supportive of each other.

In honor of the series and their friendship, Gomez, Dorfman and Boe have a small semicolon on their wrist. Also, the semicolon is the logo of Project Semicolon, a non-profit organization that helped people with mental health issues and suicide intentions. The perfect way to create social awareness!

#20. Pretty Little Liars’ Secret

The American teen drama series has become one of the most famous series around the world. We’ve been captured by every episode, with every secret that has been revealed relating to the mysterious “A”. By the end of season 7, everything was revealed to the audience but also the young actresses of the series had something to show to us…

After the finale, actresses Shay Mitchell, Ashley Benson, Troian Bellisario, Lucy Hale, Janel Parrish and Sasha Pieterse showed on Instagram their tattoos. The ladies decided to get their character’s first initial in their fingers. Which finger? Their “shhh” fingers, the most famous mark of the series.

#19. The Lord Of The Rings’ Lads

Some movies or series leave a special mark in the heart some actors and their careers too, which could mean the beginning of their fame. The Lord Of The Rings is still considered one of the best movies of all time and many members of its cast made their first steps into Hollywood thanks to this film.

In honor of the movies and J.R.R Tolkien, nine of the stars decided to get tattoos. Orlando Bloom, Elijah Wood, Dominic Monaghan, Billy Boyd, Viggo Mortensen, Ian McKellen, Sean Astin, Sean Bean and even John Rhys-Davies‘ stunt double got “nine” for their lives!.

#18. Miley Cyrus And Liam Hemsworth

We’ve been following the love story of Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth, with their ups and downs, and their recent divorce after 10 years of relationship. When everything was full of happiness to this former couple, Miley had a lovely gesture to Liam when she got a tattoo of a jar of Vegemite. Why is this related to Liam? Let’s see!

Vegemite is a thick concentrated food spread really popular in Australia, which is where Liam is native from! To return the gesture, Liam got the same tattoo. Although the couple is not together anymore, we’ll still see more tattoos of Miley because she isn’t afraid of getting one, she has more than 30!

#17. The Suicide Squad

The David Ayers’ film Suicide Squad was a complete hit when it was released, with the best cast and performances. The actors became so close that they decided to get a group tattoo but with a special twist: they all tattoed each other! As you are reading, they got the same tattoo without professional assistance.

Margot Robbie and Will Smith were in charge of tattooing the whole cast. They tattoed Margot Robbie, Cara Delevinge, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney, Karen Fukuhara and the director. Of course, themselves too! The entire Suicide Squad got the word “SKWAD“.

#16. Best Friend Forever

Remember when you were a teenager and you and your BBF decided to buy broken heart best friend necklaces? The necklace meant that your friendship was going to last forever. In this modern world, some girls and boys decide to seal their friendships getting a matching-tattoo like Hailey Bieber and Kendall Jenner.

Inspired by broken heart necklaces, the two friends decided to get broken-heart tattoos in one finger. Hailey has a red-ink broken heart while Kendall decided to get it in white. Did any of these tattoos inspire you? Continue reading the commemorative tattoos the rest of our celebs have!

#15. Demi Lovato

People sometimes get a tattoo in memoriam of a relative, a pet or a person who meant a lot to them. Celebs do the same, like the actress and singer Demi Lovato, when she decided to tattoo herself her Memaw, or well, her great grandmother.

What is lovely and touching about this tattoo is that Demi used an old photo of Mimaw when she was aged 26, the exact age Demi was when she tattoed herself. The work is precise and beautifully done. Very tasteful. A lovely gesture!

#14. David Beckham

Sometimes a tattoo has no reason behind it. Maybe the person liked the design and that was it. We might say that this is the case of David Beckham, who has so many tattoos he can’t even count them! First, he has two full sleeves and in his torso, he has some others too. We can say he is literally a beautiful art exhibition.

Photo: Courtesy of Pinterest

Of course, not all of them were just for fun. Some of his tattoos are dedicated to his family: to his longtime love during the last 20 years Victoria Beckham and their kids Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper. The other passion that is permanently in his body is the soccer team Manchester United, where he played for more than 10 years.

#13. Tom Holland

Definitely, entering the Marvel world made Tom Holland’s acting career a success. After the release of Spider-Man: Homecoming in 2017, he reprised his role in Avengers: Infinity War, in 2018, for the spider bite. The Spider-Man world was so important to the actor, that he decided to do something to always remember that time…

Photo: Courtesy of 20 Minutos

Although getting a tattoo in the sole of the foot is really painful, Holland was determined to get it done in that part. He wanted to carry the Spider-Man symbol always with him and in his footsteps in the acting career. That’s why he had to endure more-than-painful tattoo sessions to finally get the design he wanted.

#12. The Mother Of Dragoons

If there is something that Emilia Clarke should be grateful to the HBO series Game Of Thrones (apart from the worldwide fame) is that she won many many titles for her character, Daenerys Targaryen. From Khaleesi Of The Great Grass Sea to Unburnt and Breaker Of Chains; her most important role was The Mother Of Dragons.

After having walked through fire and giving birth to Drogon, Rhaegal and Viserion, there is no tattoo more suitable for her than her three little dragons across her wrist. Also, she declared that the tattoo meant how much she learned during the 10 years of GOT and how grateful she is to her fans around the world.

#11. Johny Deep

Raise your hand if you haven’t ever done something silly for love! Of course, we can’t blame you because everyone has done crazy love demonstrations. Just look at Johny Deep! When he was dating the actress Winona Ryder he stamped his love in his arm with “Winona Forever”. Sadly, the couple broke up years later and Deep had to change his tattoo for a simple but efficient “Wino Forever”.

But that tattoo was not his last, as the actor has more than 30 around his body! His second passion, acting, was a source of inspiration to him too. Remember he became Captain Jack Sparrow for the famous movie franchise Pirate Of The Caribbean. In honor of his role, he tattoed himself a sparrow flying over an ocean on his right forearm.

#10. Jason Momoa

Sometimes people choose a tattoo because it represents something spiritual or related to their religion, like a crucifix or a mandala. There are infinite options for tattoos! The Aquaman star, Hawaiian actor Jason Momoa, got a special tattoo as a tribute to his aumakua, which means family or god from the Hawaiian mythology.

The guardian or god from his family has the shape of a shark, so Momoa decided to tattoed himself nine rows of triangles geometrically organized in his left arm. Each of them symbolizes shark teeth. Although it could sound a little strange, Momoa declared that every space of the tattoo means that can you “take the darkness out and bring in the light”.

#9. Bryan Cranston

The drama series Breaking Bad is a complete success and we have to say that is one of the best TV series of all time. We still remember the explosive adventures of Walter White, the science teacher who put a meth lab after he found out he had cancer. Maybe star Bryan Cranston is going to remember the series forever too…

Photo: Courtesy of Pinterest

Cranston has declared he wasn’t a real “tattoo person” but after the series release, he wanted to have something to remember it forever. A member of the art department crew was also a tattoo artist. What are the odds? Cranston got the Breaking Bad’s symbol in his finger and every time he sees it, he feels full of joy.

#8. Ariana Grande

Deciding to get a tattoo is not always easy as it’s something that will be permanently in your body, so you should think it carefully before going to a tattoo gallery and, of course, take close look at the design too. Probably the singer Ariana Grande thought that getting many matching-tattoos with her ex-fiancé Pete Davidson was a good idea. Or remember the time she tattoed herself “7 rings” in Japanese characters that turned out to mean something different…

Poor Ariana Grande, it turns out that the characters meant “small charcoal grill”! Luckily, for the singer, not all of her tattoos are related to a bad experience. In memoriam of the victims of the concert bombing in Manchester in 2017, she got the Manchester’s symbol: a small bumblebee behind her left ear.

#7. Megan Fox

With modern science, now there is a chance to remove a tattoo that doesn’t go with your personality anymore. Megan Fox decided to do that and removed the portrait of Marilyn Monroe she had on her forearm. The actress declared that perhaps the artist’s image could bring negative energy to her image given Monroe’s battles with mental health.

Photo: Courtesy of Pinterest

That doesn’t mean that Fox doesn’t like tattoos! On the other hand, she has many pieces of art in her body. For example, we can read in a Victorian font on her shoulder: “We will laugh at gilded butterflies”The actress got that line from Shakespeare’s play King Lear.

#6. Pete Davidson

We can’t imagine the Saturday Night Live member without his tattoos and we can’t even count them! Pete Davidson has a wide variety of tattoos in his body, like the ones that are in memoriam to his father (and they are really sweet too!) and the ones he got during his engagement to Ariana Grande.

Photo: Courtesy of People

Some of them were an impulsive act, such as that of the bunny ears mask from Dangerous Woman in his neck. Later, when the couple broke up, he decided to cover up that tattoo with a black heart.

#5. John Legend And Chrissy Teigen

Having a matching tattoo seems to be one of the most romantic acts couples do. We all love the relationship between John Legend and Chrissy Teigen. They always show themselves really in love and recently, Teigen shared on Instagram their last act of love…

Photo: Courtesy of Cosmopolitan

The couple got a matching tattoo of each other’s name and their two kids’ names written in a lower case script in one line. How romantic is that? The tattoo is simple yet powerful (and so sweet!). Perfect for the longtime couple.

#4. Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga is the queen of music and fashion tendencies but recently she has been dabbling in the acting career and her last tattoo is definitely related to that… The A Star Is Born actress has tattoed herself a series of musical notes in her arm. The ones that know how to read them, will notice that in treble clef it would be “G-A-G-A”.

Photo: Courtesy of Direct Expose

But, what would it happen if we read in bass clef? According to many fans and specialist, the same notes in bass clef turns out to be “B-C-B-C”, the initials of the A Star Is Born‘s director and costar, Bradley Cooper. We can’t blame the fans, both of them have shown a great chemistry on-screen and out of it!

#3. Neil Patrick Harris

Some roles become really important for actors, not only for the fame they bring, but also for the effort they have to put into it. The A Series Of Unfortunate Events star, Neil Patrick Harris decided to get a tattoo in honor of his role as Count Olaf, the eccentric antagonist from the Netflix series.

When Netflix decided to continue with the show for another season, this was Harris’ way to celebrate! And what could be better than doing so with his first tattoo? Harris decided to get a tattoo of the Volunteer Fire Department symbol, the one Count Olaf is known for.

#2. Bella Hadid

Sometimes an image can mean a lot of different things, depending on the interpretation. Bella Hadid‘s tattoo of two small wings on her right ankle may mean something related to the Greek god Hermes or something related to angels. However, to Hadid, it means something completely different and personal…

Photo: Courtesy of Pinterest

After being rejected in many casts, Hadid finally got the opportunity of her life: to become a model for Victoria’s Secret fashion show in 2016. It’s said that the models who get this job are called the “Angels”. Hadid got her tattoo in January 2017, after she became an official VS Angel.

#1. Rihanna

There is no celebrity who is more fan and admirer of body art and tattoos than the explosive singer Rihanna. She has declared on many occasions that she thinks her tattoos are culture and that she is a complete devotee to them. In other words, her tattoos are considered a tribute to her!

Photo: Courtesy of Pinterest

In her ankle, she got tattoed the year “1988” in which she was born. She decided to do it in the Bang Bang Tattoo Parlor in New York City, a typical place for tattoo artists and where most of her tattoos have been done.
